Mkmma Week 5 2016 – “Today I begin a New Life” Og Mandino.
I have been battling with the thought that next year I will be turning 60. Who would have thought? As a kid I never thought I would see the day come that I would be old.
But, as I read Scroll One from The Greatest Salesman by Og Mandingo; I realize that I can shed my old self and gain my new self. I imagine shedding the old sun worn, wrinkled shell into this smooth, unmarked form that is the new me.
Live life as it has just begun.
live in awe.
My life has just begun.
Then I remember the song they played at my graduation from high school…:
- “We’ve Only Just Begun” lyrics
THE CARPENTERS LYRICS”We’ve Only Just Begun”We’ve only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way
We’ve only begun
Before the rising sun we fly
So many roads to choose
We start out walking and learn to run
And yes, we’ve just begun
Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talking it over just the two of us
Working together day to day
And when the evening comes we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, We’ve just begun.
So, this next birthday; I am going to remember I am as young as I feel and act. Age is just a number. It doesn’t have to be a judgement. In my mind I am still sixteen.
